Greatness Equation Potential Adjustment

So, I've been tinkering with my Greatness Equation a bit over the last couple days, after a discussion with a friend of mine. Basically, it revolved around the placement of Shawn Kemp. The way things stood, Kemp was ranked 91st with a rating of 172.7. That's pretty damn respectable, but it really doesn't accurately reflect how truly dominant the Reign Man was from about 1993-1997. Now, the biggest flaw with the equation has always been that it only measures a player's entire career, and can't gauge a player's peak or how long that peak lasted. So, I made a slight tweak that hopefully addresses that.
